Someone sent me a link to this remarkable film of a young disabled man with a truly amazing talent as a pianist.

Derek Paravicini... Musical Savant!

Lesley Stahl profiles British musical savant Derek Paravicini, whose computer-like memory for music is matched by his creative abilities to play it in any style.

Derek, a musical genius and nephew of Camilla Parker Bowles, plays the piano like you've never heard.
Yet, he doesn't know his age, nor does he know how to hold up three fingers! Also, he is blind!

I've seen a TV doc about him. He is truly remarkable!
